NIV 5 "Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year's wages. " NRS 6 (He said this not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief; he kept the common purse and used to steal what was put into it.) NIV 6 He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it. NRS 7 Jesus said, "Leave her alone.

NRS 9 When the great crowd of the Jews learned that he was there, they came not only because of Jesus but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.

NRS 16 His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written of him and had been done to him. NIV 16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that they had done these things to him. NRS 17 So the crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to testify. NIV 17 Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word.

NRS 25 Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. NIV 25 The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. NRS 26 Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor. NIV 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. NRS 27 "Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say—"Father, save me from this hour'? No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour. NIV 27 "Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save me from this hour'? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. NRS 28 Father, glorify your name." Then a voice came from heaven, "I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again." NIV 28 Father, glorify your name!" Then a voice came from heaven, "I have glorified it, and will glorify it again." NRS 29 The crowd standing there heard it and said that it was thunder. Others said, "An angel has spoken to him." NIV 29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him. NRS 30 Jesus answered, "This voice has come for your sake, not for mine. NIV 30 Jesus said, "This voice was for your benefit, not mine. NRS 31 Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out.

NIV 32 But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." NRS 33 He said this to indicate the kind of death he was to die. NIV 33 He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die. NRS 34 The crowd answered him, "We have heard from the law that the Messiah remains forever. How can you say that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?"

NRS 35 Jesus said to them, "The light is with you for a little longer. Walk while you have the light, so that the darkness may not overtake you. If you walk in the darkness, you do not know where you are going. NIV 35 Then Jesus told them, "You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. NRS 36 While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become children of light." After Jesus had said this, he departed and hid from them. NIV 36 Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light." When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them. NRS 37 Although he had performed so many signs in their presence, they did not believe in him. NIV 37 Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. NRS 38 This was to fulfill the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah: "Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" NIV 38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: "Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" NRS 39 And so they could not believe, because Isaiah also said, NIV 39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere: NRS 40 "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they might not look with their eyes, and understand with their heart and turn— and I would heal them." NIV 40 "He has blinded their eyes and deadened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn--and I would heal them." NRS 41 Isaiah said this because he saw his glory and spoke about him. NIV 41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus' glory and spoke about him. NRS 42 Nevertheless many, even of the authorities, believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they did not confess it, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue; NIV 42 Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; NRS 43 for they loved human glory more than the glory that comes from God. NIV 43 for they loved praise from men more than praise from God. NRS 44 Then Jesus cried aloud: "Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in him who sent me. NIV 44 Then Jesus cried out, "When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. NRS 45 And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. NIV 45 When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. NRS 46 I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness. NIV 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. NRS 47 I do not judge anyone who hears my words and does not keep them, for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. NIV 47 "As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. NRS 48 The one who rejects me and does not receive my word has a judge; on the last day the word that I have spoken will serve as judge, NIV 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day. NRS 49 for I have not spoken on my own, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment about what to say and what to speak. NIV 49 For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. NRS 50 And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I speak, therefore, I speak just as the Father has told me." NIV 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say."
